Player to watch - Zak Whitbread: Unable to quite make the grade at Liverpool, the blonde American is a fans favourite at the New Den.

Millwall's long wait for their first home league win of the season ended when young midfielder Marvin Elliott prodded the ball home from a corner to settle a distinctly scrappy encounter.
